2014 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Jun-24-2014 by Daniel Kalles
Danny Amendola was brought in to replace Wes Welker, but a Week 1 groin injury cost him playing time and he was never able to get fully healthy. This led to what became a very disappointing season. When the pads are off and the stakes are low, he has looked great during OTAs and the Patriots are crossing their fingers that he can stay healthy. A healthy Amendola would really do wonders for Brady and the passing game, but staying healthy has been a major obstacle for him his entire career. If healthy, he can definitely be a WR3 fantasy receiver in PPR formats, but that's a huge if.

It's not a very long trip from the New England area to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, but the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe has been told by a couple of sources that Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman didn't make that trip with his teammates on Saturday. Edelman suffered a concussion at some point in the past week, possibly during practice. Although he was still able to practice in limited fashion throughout the week, he didn't complete the league's concussion protocol before the team departed. Edelman will miss his first game since 2012.Fantasy Analysis:
We're so used to the Patriots listing players as questionable even though they are relatively fine, so this news kind of caught me off guard. It's a tough loss for the Patriots and fantasy owners as Edelman had a very nice matchup against the Jets on tap. As it is, the Patriots will lean on Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola out wide. Running back Shane Vereen, who caught two receiving TDs when the Patriots hosted the Jets in Week 7, may also have a larger role in the passing game.
